Brady: Businesses Are Terrified of Biden’s Assault on Jobs

February 5, 2021 — Press Releases   

WASHINGTON–The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement in response to the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s jobs report for the month of January:

“This weak jobs report is no surprise. Businesses are terrified of President Biden’s assault on jobs and industries his administration hates. In his first days in office, he has taken action to kill more than one million good-paying energy jobs, and has promised to go further.

“Unfortunately, there is little stimulus in the President’s nearly two-trillion dollar ‘stimulus.’ And unless he begins to work with Republicans in earnest, Americans will suffer tepid job growth as the new normal.”

Note: 49,000 jobs were added in January and unemployment rate was 6.3 percent, according to BLS.
